2016 summer semester Flying Robot Project 3rd Team FApril 27, 2016


[Summary of weekly work]
We made an initial three-view layout and determine the specification.
We carried out feasibility study of an ornithopter at first. The most important problem to realize an ornithopter is a method of realizing the accuracy and strength of the gear box to activate beating wings. It is difficult to it make by ourselves. And we found the outsourcing manufacture on the web, but credibility has not been high to realize a good gear box.
So we will challenge the 2nd idea to establish Infrared ray induction auto landing guidance system. Similar system is established in previous research (1). We consult it. The system is calculated the airplane position based on the variation of receiving strength of Photo diodes placed 2 x 2 array. But in this project, the cpu power is limited because of plane weight limit and the cpu power may not be enough to calculate in time. So we will consider that we should put a receiver or a emitter on the airplane.

1. Team・aircraft concept
We will make a Tailless biplane and it is optimized to minimize the flight speed.
We establish the auto landing system and the infrared rays landing guidance system.
2. Initial three-view layout
3. Aircraft specification
Various elements of airplane are written in our three-view layout and aircraft specification. So see it.
Infrared Rays Induction Auto Landing System
① IR guidance balise emits an IR guidance signal.
② On-board IR receiving device receives the signal and airplane calculates itself position with IR signal strength.
③ System Calculates flight course and guidance command.

[Problems and Subjects]
We should decide the infrared ray induction auto landing system specifications in detail. The noise may very large to compare the variation of photo diodes, because our system is utilized in open air with many light source. So we should adjust parameters in many times.
